Weekend Wrap

November 15, 1993


This Saturday: at Wake Forest, Groves Stadium, Winston-Salem, N.C., 1 p.m.

Previous game: The Terrapins' 44-21 loss at North Carolina State looked like the majority of their outings. They fell apart after a promising start and are threatening to become the first Maryland team to lose 10 games in a season. The Wolfpack kept alive its hopes for a sixth straight bowl game by erasing a 7-0 deficit and putting Maryland away by the third period with big plays and by capitalizing on Terps errors. Maryland is 6-26 since 1991. . . . Wake Forest lost to Georgia Tech, 38-28.

Key statistics: The Terps defense allowed N.C. State points on seven of eight possessions after Maryland took its early lead and the offense moved the ball 51 times in four possessions following the opening touchdown. . . . N.C. State gained 540 yards to put Maryland within reach of the NCAA record for yards allowed in a season and reached its 1993 high in scoring. . . . Five Terps turnovers led directly to 13 N.C. State points. . . . Junior-college transfer Allen Williams led Maryland in rushing with 93 yards on 17 carries.

Injuries: The absence of Raphael Wall (shoulder sprain), who did not dress, and Lamont Gore (sore back), who retired at halftime, left Maryland with five healthy players for four secondary positions, and coach Mark Duffner had to use linebackers in the defensive backfield. Top receiver Jermaine Lewis (shoulder) missed his second straight game and defensive lineman Madison Bradley (back) is finished for the season. Lewis is doubtful and Wall questionable for Wake Forest.
